Default How/Why did you find Beatlelinks forum?

Um, sorry for the bad title. Didn't really know how to put it.
Pretty much, how did you come across the forum?

I've found it when I was googling beatles tattoos, and there was a link to the beatles tattoo topic on google. I lurked around for awhile then decided to make an account! It's a great place to vent about the beatles; my friends and family get annoyed when I talk about them too much.
We reckoned we could make it because there were four of us. None of us would've made it alone, because Paul wasn't quite strong enough, I didn't have enough girl-appeal, George was too quiet, and Ringo was the drummer. But we thought that everyone would be able to dig at least one of us, and that's how it turned out.

I found it in 2003 thanks to a lovely member named Sentimentalist. I'm really into the Beatle wives/girlfriends and I had stumbled upon her site. We've kept in touch, helping each other when we find a new girl or info. There was a link to BeatleLinks, so, being the curious 12-year-old that I was, I clicked on it. The rest is history.
Thanks, Senti.

Me too! It was also in 2003 that I joined Beatlinks... I was searching for Beatles stuff in the net and I found the link to it. It was an obsession since then...

Favorite Beatle: George (1943-2001)

Favorite Beatle year(s): 1966, 1967*, 1968

(*1967 was the year that My Guy was born... my favorite Guy...)

My Quote for George:
"A Butterfly Flying Around Me Saying Goodbye!"
God Bless You, George... Love ya...

"GEORGE ! You just give me stripes, moustache and a smile... cause You're So Fine!"

Song to remember the Past: "In My Life"

Just call me Cloud or GOC9

I found it last summer when I googled for Beatles message boards because I wanted to talk to other Beatles fans.
"Once upon a time there were three
little boys called john, george
and paul,
by named christened. They decided to get
together because they were the getting-together
type. When they were together they wondered
what for after all, what for? So all of a sudden
they all grew guitars and formed a noise."

If I remember correctly, I got it from a Help! movie tribute site that I found off IMDB. Actually, I think it was EasternBird's.

Found the site eons ago, it came up on a search. And I used to use it to find... well... Beatle links... it was in 2000 (I think, though, maybe it was earlier than that?) that I discovered it... only found my way to the board here, though, in 2003, and I'm so glad I did. It's been one of the best things that's ever happened to me
Peace, Love, and Beatles!

Will this site was born in April 2000 by Jerry and Brett.

I was with another Beatles forum, it's name I can't even remember now. That forum was going nowhere and I literally stumbled upon Beatlelinks in June 2000. I've been a faithful member since.

I have a need to talk to other Beatle fans! My husband likes the Beatles, but not as much as I do, so I searched out a forum and I found this! I'm glad I did. This is a great place!

Searching for Beatles wallpaper for my desktop. I came onto the board and found a thriving online community. I was part of one before and things turned sour there and I have been looking for another message board to call home. I think I found it

I found the link to Beatlelinks on the Beatlefest website. When I saw there was a forum I lurked around for a little while too. After being sure that I wasnt going to have to pay for anything, I decided to join up

Oh wow.. I can't even remember! It was six years ago, I was in grade 9 and had just become very obsessed with the Beatles. I was practically glued to the computer monitor that year, lol.

I was doing a google search for a Beatles discussion forum. I just wanted to find other Beatles fans to chat with since the remasters had come out.

I can't recall, I believe I did a search for Beatles. This is not the first name I signed in here with....

It was so long ago that I can barely remember, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with fan fiction links... I started getting really into the Beatles again after a long hiatus, and about six months later I was here! (Back when the forum and the website had a different colour scheme... I still remember that!)

I always lurked around the forums because I went on Links a lot and thought about joining but never did. Until one day I really needed information on something and came across a thread on here about it so decided to join and post on the thread. I kick myself for not joining sooner because I love this place.

Inspiration, move me brightly.
